Greenhouse #1: Here's the Scoop

07-19-2013 01:39 AM by Steve | 0 comments »

I am building a greenhouse and wanted to post some info here about the greenhouse. I just can’t deal with posting in both places, so have decided because the greenhouse relates more to gardening to post my info in my gardening blog. So if your interested check it out over in GardenTenders. I am providing sufficient details, so if someone choose to do so, you could build a replica of my greenhouse.

Greentower / greenhouse BLOG.

When your garden are app. 6×4 meters, a greenhouse can be a challange…So I had put this idea away – untill one day I drove my car, and some one had put on the street some old windows for trash. The windows were put on the back seat, and then in my little garden, so I could think.Some thoughts later (weeks acually), I was ready to sketch, and the idea of a greentower was born. And yes, the idea only…, so now it was time to buy some wood, cut it up in the sizes nee...

Greenhouse #10: Doh and Dough

05-12-2009 01:45 AM by Zuki | 6 comments »

Last night I was reading some Sherlock Holmes after DW and I watched a movie and something struck me. No it wasn’t DW wanting me to turn out the light . . . it was the fact that the latch for the door was an in-swing and the hinges were an out-swing. Doh !! I definitely needed Sherlock and Dr Watson to help me figure this one out. After work this evening I started by attaching a couple of screws to test fit the door. The next thee pics you may remember from my last installmen...

Greenhouse #6: Another busy evening

05-06-2009 02:22 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I started by drilling holes through the top plate of the walls. When we install the roof I will redrill the holes through the roof frame so that I can bolt it all together. We unrolled the poly around the greenhouse and cut it. We then unfolded it and started attaching. Here I am marking it with a Sharpie so that we will have 6’ overlap on the top plate. Going around the sides. This is definitely a 2 person job. DW has taken a break to take a pic. I’m marking again. ...

Greenhouse #5: Its coming along

Over the last couple of days we have made some progress on the greenhouse. I finished framing the roof, made the vents, trucked some nice crushed stone into the “walkway” and coated all the wood in a mixture of sunflower oil, activated charcoal and iron oxide (from LV). DW helped (did most) with the staining. Next is to apply the plastic to the top and bottom, connect the two and make the door. I was thinking about using lag bolts to keep the roof and sides together, but tonight I dec...

Greenhouse #1: The Beginning

04-22-2009 02:43 AM by Zuki | 2 comments »

I have not been posting any projects in a while, so I thought I would start 2009 with a greenhouse. I’m sure I can cross post to GT and HR . . . however I will do it here first. We had looked at purchasing one, however the good ones are really expensive and the cheaper ones (while not much cheaper) have quality issues. We already had several raised garden beds from last year as a base so we decided on building a poly sheathed greenhouse to cover the raised beds. The two in the picture...
